Just wanted to make a post saying I installed my Dual exhaust kit form AM yesterday! :D It definitely wasn't an easy install, it took me and my dad about 4 1/2 hours to get it all installed, but it was definitely worth it!
We just payed our local mechanic $25 to use his lift for the time we needed, and then we installed it ourselves. :D It actually seems a good bit quieter inside the cabin than my old single exhaust did (probably because of the muffler type), but outside it sounds amazing! It also did seem to add a bit of a performance gain, especially high end after you get going.

I just wanted to post and say that I am very happy with it and it is a great addition to my car! I will try to post some pics/videos soon! Thanks AM!
Oh and lastly what would you guys suggest I do now? I can't really do anymore performance mods that I can afford.. I already have coils, CAI, tuner, and obviously the duals, and I don't have like 700-800$ to spend on gears (with the install), or cams or whatever..
So maybe I should just move on to appearance mods? :)

from a preformance standpoint gears would be teh next step when looking at costs. Upgrading your suspension, wheels and tires is always a good thing as well. Going =2 on wheels will give you a more custom look for sure. I went with the 2010 GT500 wheels from byfordracing. they are 18x9 1/2 inches with 255/45-18 hankook v12 tires. That's about $1200 installed.

I definitely do want tires to give it more of a custom look, but I don't have even close to $1200 to spend. :( I guess I could just save for it, but that would still take a long while..

I don't know exactly what kind of mufflers, I think they are like magnaflow, or flowmaster or something.. And yea it was just a conversion kit, so it was a cat-back with an X-pipe. :p

I got the Dual Exhaust conversion kit from American Muscle. The kit itself was like $454 with a discount code, normally like $474. It had free shipping, and like I said I just paid the local mechanic to use his lift to install it. If you pay someone to actually install it that will probably add at least another $100 to it. o.0

i just installed long tube headers on my car and if you want your car to scream then i would suggest doing that. The headers themselves cost me just over $200 and I paid $300 for the install because it required my cats to be deleted in order to fit which also led to some custom welding. I'd say if you can find a place to do that (deleting cats is illegal) or you're good with a welder then go ahead and get that as your next step. My car breathes like its got a jet turbine under the hood instead of a combustion engine haha
